The University Campus
Walla Walla University is located in the city of College Place, in the historic, fertile Walla Walla Valley of southeastern Washington. The Old Oregon Trail, passing west of the campus, leads directly to the nearby Whitman Mission National Historic Site. The scenic Blue Mountains to the east and the Snake and Columbia Rivers to the north and west offer opportunities for recreation and relaxation.
The University was originally established as Walla Walla College on December 7, 1892, in harmony with a resolution unanimously adopted at the General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists held in Battle Creek, Michigan in 1891.
MONTANA CAMPUSES. Walla Walla University has two branch campuses in Montana maintained by the Wilma Hepker School of Social Work and Sociology; one in Missoula and the other in the south side of Billings. These campuses serve the needs of students enrolled in the Master of Social Work program.
PORTLAND CAMPUS. Walla Walla University operates a separate campus in Portland, Oregon maintained by the School of Nursing. The campus is located on the grounds of the Adventist Medical Center and consists of an academic building and a residence hall for students enrolled as nursing majors.
ROSARIO BEACH MARINE LABORATORY. Walla Walla University operates a biological research and academic facility at Rosario Beach, adjoining Deception Pass State Park, Anacortes, Washington. This facility occupies 40 acres of beach and timberland, and includes laboratory buildings, a cafeteria, assembly hall, and cabins for student and staff housing.
